Us


We're passionate about creating and supporting sustainable entrepreneurs on the African continent. Since 2013 Matoyana has interacted with over 1000 entrepreneurs though various projects and initiatives.

We provide personalized support which is tailored to meet our client’s business needs. We take time to delve into and understand the client’s business and organization. We are able to relate to small business and we tailor our services to meet their needs because we recognize that they have limited resources and often, great potential
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” # Steve Jobs

“Let’s go invent tomorrow rather than worrying about what happened yesterday” # Steve Jobs

Even though she knew very little about my industry she was still able to show me how to focus my thinking around the importance on creating an effective business plan that best describes my objective and caters directly to my audience.
